Participants will take part in the three sports as well as learning about technique, nutrition and race planning.

Sessions for people aged 18+ start on Wednesday and costs £35, while members can sign-up for £10.

Experienced British triathlon coaches will be leading the programme, which working is in conjunction with Wiltshire Council Sport Development Team and Lewis Andrews Foundation. To book, email salisburytriclub@gmail.com or go to www.salisburytriclub.com.

The first class begins at 6.30pm and will last 90 minutes.

On completion of the course, participants will receive a year’s club membership and discounted entry into a local triathlon event.
